When you turn the drum by hand does it feel like it has resistance or does it feel like possibly the belt has broke ? These machines have a belt switch and if the belt breaks the machine will not start

it has resistance like I am turning drum with belt

Do you hear anything at all when you press start? Any clicking like a relay possibly kicking in? Or is it just dead silence and nothing happens ?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

there is no sound; lights are on, no click

Okay this mean door switch has failed, it's like when you open the door the dryer stops and will not start with the door open. Do you have a voltmeter? You could test the door switch for continuity, if there is no continuity replace the door switch assembly. Door Switch 422183 Main Product ViewYou can order the set the following link,
